The Iran you don't see in the news

For most people from the West — especially the US — Iran may be among the top-five last places they’d think of visiting. It’s a country associated with terrorism, violence, and societal repression. But if travel teaches us anything, it’s the vast difference between how places are portrayed in the media and the reality of what you find when you actually go there. Dutch Filmmaker and photographer Reinier van Oorsouw traveled to Iran with this simple question in mind: Is it really that bad? In ...

Facebook is the recruiting tool of choice for far-right group the Proud Boys

Twitter may have suspended the Proud Boys and their controversial leader Gavin McInnes, but it was never their platform of choice.

While McInnes maintained a presence on many platforms, Facebook is the heart of the group’s operations. It’s there that the Proud Boys boast more...

Blast From the Past: Tea roses, not rose tea

While reading about roses, I kept coming across “teas” and wondered how roses and teas were related. What are tea roses?  Not surprisingly, they are so named because the fragrances of some varieties resemble that of Chinese black tea.  Rose historian and author Brent Dickerson elaborates further by comparing the scent to “a newly-opened sample of the choicest tea”.   Tea roses originated in China and were introduced in the West in 1808, a year ancient enough to categorize tea roses as a type of...
